“Calvin & Hobbes” hanno trent’anni
di Antonio Russo

"Ad eccezione di due calendari del 1989 e del 1990, di un libro di testo scolastico del 1993 (“Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes”) e di un francobollo stampato dallo United States Postal Service nel 2010, non esistono prodotti che raffigurino legalmente – cioè con una regolare licenza di merchandising – personaggi o scene di Calvin & Hobbes."

"Bonus Fact: Bill Watterson, the creator of comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, almost never licenses his characters for commercial use. One exception, though, came in 1993, when a special education teacher wrote to him to tell him that her students found Watterson’s characters engaging and asked him to license a textbook for her and others to use. He agreed, “Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes” entered a limited print run. Because the print run was so small and because Watterson doesn’t often authorize licensed product, the book is now very expensive, even for a textbook."

"La scuola, secondo Calvin e Hobbes

"18 SETTEMBRE 2015 | STORIE | STRIPS | di Andrea Fiamma

"Nonostante le bordate sull’istruzione tirate da Watterson, l’aspetto educativo gli doveva stare a cuore in qualche modo, visto che uno dei pochissimi pezzi di merchandising ufficiale fu proprio il libro didattico Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes. Pubblicato nel 1993, il testo si proponeva di insegnare ai bambini delle elementari nozioni filosofiche e psicologiche attraverso alcune storyline della striscia. Teaching ricevette il consenso degli addetti ai lavori e tutt’oggi è nella lista nei libri consigliati agli insegnanti. Il problema è reperirne una copia."

"270. Solo 8 bibliotecas del mundo tienen un ejemplar de 'Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes'."

"Es un libro educativo para el que Watterson licenció algunas tiras y del que se editaron muy pocas copias."
